@DeeVa said in Can no longer search for items in the Personal Shop?:
@Blackfires Okay, so I was doing the same thing but with a new AC scratch item. I think at this point it's safe to say that it's some sort of soft ban meant to catch bots (bots that are doing exactly what we are doing lol). Now that being said, this is what I have gathered so far. I'd like to get some sort of official response on this, but I doubt that'll happen. I hope the information below helps you and anyone who finds this from being soft banned from the personal shops in the future.
list item 1.) The system in place will soft ban you for about an hour.
list item 2.) It triggers when you are
repeatedly pushing refresh on the same search result over and over searching too fast
list item 3.) It prevents you from searching in the personal shops by results only (You can still see what is in your friend's shops and player's shops within your alliance)
list item 4.)
Searching for something different rather than spamming refresh on the same page seems to reset or bypass the trigger
Updated. Seems to trigger when searching too fast, nothing resets this except searching slower.
If this has helped you, feel free to like my Lookbook on Ship 2. Search DeeVa in at the Visiphone under ARKS SEARCH.
